勉強する vs 学ぶ vs 習う I'm wondering what the difference is between 勉強する・学ぶ・習う. Can they be used interchangeably? Are there specific situations that each one is restricted to?

I asked a similar question to this one on lang-8. Here's the responses I got. 勉強する: Ex. 私は毎日英語の勉強をします。 (よく使います。一般的な言い方です。) General, commonly used word 学ぶ: Ex. 新しい事を学びました "「勉強する・学ぶ」この2つは近いです。" I think 学ぶ can carry the connotation of studying something "in-depth." 習う: "先生から直接教わるような時に使います" "「習う」は他人から教えてもらう感じです。" Ex. ギターを習いました。 So it seems 習う is used when you are learning from a teacher of some sort. http://lang-8.com/1780769/journals/128790584955609806024489142409124499152 Not a native, but hopefully this can help a little
